Jensen AcklesThe CW is delaying the return of Smallville and Supernatural by one week. The broadcaster is pushing back the return of both popular shows because the network, according to sources, wanted a chance to repeat episodes of Nikita and Vampire Diaries to give their midseason debuts more chance to pick up viewers. There are also reports of local pre-emptions in Chicago which probably have also had a part to play in The CW’s decision. So fans of Smallville and Supernatural will just have to wait another week. On the plus side the two show’s delayed return may, just may, work in the favour of Fringe who might pick up additional viewers who would have switched over for The CW’s offerings.
